In this paper, we propose an office layout support sys tem considering usage using interactive genetic algorithm. In the proposed system, some conditions such as size and form of room, size and position of window and door, and the number of workers, shelves and printers and so on are given by users, some layout plans which satisfy the condi tions are generated by genetic algorithm. In this system, desks are packed per group, and relation between arrange ment plans for every group is expressed in the sequence pair representation. We carried out a series of computer ex periments in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed system and confirmed that the proposed system can generate various layout plans.
